Alan Wake 2’s New Patch Promises Technical Fixes And ‘Friendlier’ Error Messages

Alan Wake 2 has been out for just a weekend, and Remedy has already put out a new patch. However, the patch notes aren’t terribly specific, with one amusing exception.

The full list of tweaks can be found on the game’s official website, and have different fixes for each platform. The PC and PlayStation 5 versions have general “bugfixes” and “localization fixes,” while the PC notes also mention adding a “significantly friendlier error message” if you have some third-party software that prevents Alan Wake 2 from booting up on your device.

Out of context, I would have assumed this meant the game previously led with a message that creative director and Max Payne face model Sam Lake was about to kick down players’ doors for using third-party software. But apparently, the original message read: “The game failed to connect or authenticate with your Epic account. Third-party overlays may prevent the game from resolving this issue. Please try disabling third-party overlays temporarily and restart the game.”

Beyond that, the Xbox Series X/S version has a few more notes, primarily around technical troubles. But again, they’re not too specific beyond noting visual, UI, and progress-blocking bugs. The full list reads as follows:
